jdbc questions

i'm trying to compile the following code using a 3rd party driver. by using the following

javac -classpath "C:\beans"

and getting the following error 'class' or 'interface' expected
public Class webtopjdbc {
^ package basiswebtop does not exist
import basiswebtop.*;
^ package basisjdbc does not exist
import basisjdbc.*;

do i have to use the main method ?

do i have to instantiate the class ?

do i have to use the import statements ?

both jar files are in the directory so why isn't it being read ?

You've written the class keyword with an uppercase 'C'.

thanks. it worled when i changed it and the compile line to javac -classpath "C:\beans\ "

its funny though, when i run the command and it returns to the prompt (giving no message as always - inferring its compiled), and yet its not there in the directory ?? vai command line or windows explorer interface ?

This is a basic java compilation issue and not related to JDBC, so I'm moving this off to the Java in General(beginner) forum for further discussion.
